Hypnobirthing Testimonials for Mind and Body Scotland
Read what Mind and Body Scotland clients have thought about working with Renee:
"I have to start by saying this woman has changed my life and I wish I had met her sooner. I fell pregnant in May last year. I had been sick morning, noon, night AND throughout the night, spending a lot of my nights falling asleep, when I could, on the bathroom floor. I struggled to even sit down without feeling sick and lying down was impossible. So sleeping has been almost non-existent. At eight months the sickness got worse (I didn't think this was possible) along with PUPPS (a very itchy, painful pregnancy rash) I was shattered and was really panicking that I wouldn't be able to have the natural birth I wanted, due to being so exhausted.
Until falling pregnant, I have never been ill.....even a walk with our dog some days seemed like the end of the world. The onset of this rash meant I couldn't even get clothes on and so I spent a lot of my day in the bath.... BUT that very night when I was at my worst, I had the first of my hypnobirthing classes with less than a month till my due date!
During my first class with Renee McBride.... what can I say? The woman performed a miracle. From that night on I haven't been, or even felt, sick once. I can eat, I can sleep, I feel the best I have felt throughout my entire pregnancy (and the end is the worst everyone tells me) the rash is clearing daily and I have such a positive outlook on my labour now, so much so that I asked Renee to be my Doula attending my home birth.
I wish everyone could be a little more open minded and give these classes a go. I listen to the scripts she gave me daily for sickness, itching and labour. I feel I have learnt things I will use daily for the rest of my life. I have, and I will continue to recommend hypnobirthing with Renee. Thanks Renee, you are one in a million and I can't wait for you to be our Doula." - Zoe T.
"Kieran and I want to say thank you Renee for your help during our pregnancy. After having a traumatic delivery of our first child in 2017 when I discovered I was pregnant again I was scared of the idea of giving birth again. We approached Renee for a hypnobirthing course. During the course she gave us a lot of useful information that the NHS hadn't told us during my previous pregnancy, including our rights to ask questions. Even after the course I could approach Renee with questions or concerns that I had. Listening to one of the hypnotherapy recordings everyday helped me to stay calm and relaxed throughout my pregnancy.
I had a short labour (3hrs 15min) and felt very relaxed. Whereas during my last labour I was very panicked. I was able to use the breathing techniques and recording taught by Renee to deal with the powerful surges without any medication (not even a whiff of gas and air). Afterwards one of the doctors said that she couldn't believe I had delivered so quickly. She had spoken to me 45 minites prior to baby arriving and didn't think my labour was as far as it was because I was easily dealing with the surges. I would definitely recommend Renee as a hypnobirthing teacher to everyone." Shona
